"There weren't many things that Mrs. Milligan did not know about Bedford High School. It's 
hard to imagine the number and variety of questions that crossed that counter in the Student Office, 
but Mrs. Milligan had answers for them all. She held herself to an uncompromising standard. She 
tamed the information monster and managed the office menagerie with skill and quiet strength. Her 
quiet humility made her capacity for detail and organization an almost unnoticed commodity- but a 
priceless one at that. 

There weren't many things that Mrs. Milligan did not know about Bedford High School. She 
knew the kids. She knew whose parent was sick, and who, after graduating, was living with whom; 
who was pregnant and who went to which university. She was an encyclopedia of absence excuses. 
She took it all in, day after day, week after week, year after year. She knew virtually every student's 
name, and their knowing that she knew made their interaction with the office especially personal. 
Yet with all that knowledge, there was never a question of anyone's confidentiality being 
compromised. Mrs. Milligan was a woman of immeasurable honesty, caring and integrity. 

As a private person, Mrs. Milligan may not have been well known by many, but those of us who 
knew her were lucky to have our lives decorated with the Milliganisms that we came to know and 
love: her passion for hummus and her fabulous homemade soups; her talent with fabric and yarn, her 
impeccable taste; and above all, her love of family, her husband, and her motherly pride. She was a 
generous heart who always gave. She gave when she was sick as well as when she was well. She 
was the voice of BHS for almost two decades. She was our Mrs. M, and we miss her dearly."

This past summer I went to Trinidad on a mission 
trip. I spent a week running a VBS (Vacation Bible 
School), visiting an orphanage and rehabilitation 
center, doing construction work, and learning 
about the Trinidadian culture. I did similar work in 
eighth grade, so it was interesting to see what was 
different from my last Xnam^W time spent serving 
was humbling and I [ 
kids and singing si 
the trip was visit 
incredible oppo 
those kids hav< 
soon warmed u 
every foreign cha" 
possessed. Also, I rea 
worship. They had a steel-pan 
was amazing. The Trinidadian people 
vibrantly and when we greeted one anothe 
during the service, strangers were embracing 
strangers. No judgment or assumptions were 
made, it was all genuine friendliness. Finally, 
Trinidad was a great reminder to slow down. In 
their culture, life is not run by a tight schedule that 
consumes many Americans. Instead, they relish in 
"limin", their term for relaxing. So my advice to 
everyone is to "lime." :)

What was school like in Africa? 

"I went to a French school in N'Djamena, the capital aty of Chad, in 
^centr al Africa. The main difference is that in my school there. French is

here in Bedford? 

"The French school system seems to put a much larger emphasis on 
history and geography, while the American system seems to put a larger 
relative emphasis on math and science." 

Over the summer Apple Seibert and her two sisters, Maddie 
and Lizzie, went on an 1 80-mile bike trip to Greenfield NY, 
near Saratoga Springs. On all tups there are ups and downs. 
The best part according to Apple was "having sing-alongs while 
biking through the mountains". Maddie and Lizzie agreed that 
breakfast was the best part, especially "in all the cool diners". 
The worst part was "getting up early" because "every day was 
so completely exhausting" agreed Maddie and Lizzie. Apple on 
the other hand thought that the worst part was "bikms

mascot is a moosef Arounorric town are life-sized moose 
painted in different andffeative ways. "They gave out town 
maps with all of tj^ffoose locations on them. It was pretty 
awesome" said Apple. When the trio would stop for a break, 
they would sometimes rest at gas stations and it was there 
that they met some interesting people. "We met a lot of 
friendly gas station people who let us use their bathrooms. 
People have a lot of sympathy for you when you've been 
riding your bike for more than 4 hours." 
Some interesting facts: 

- Even if you drink 5 gallons of Gatorade, your sweat does not 
turn blue. 

- It's impossible to find a bathroom in the Green Mountains. 

- Scenery is much more enjoyable when you don't have to pee. 

- Bike shorts have a much bigger purpose than just making you 
look intense. Although, they are very fierce."

kindergarten, and others are brand new. but regardless, we are going through this amazing and life-changing

This year we've entered a new chapter in our lives. A chapter that many of us were scared to face, yet all 
of us have made it through successfully! This year was different for you; the environment, the classes, and 
possibly even you have changed, yourself. High school is a journey all about finding out who you truly are, 
expressing yourself.and making mistakes. Through this journey, life will throw unexpected challenges; but 
we are all on this journey together. Let's make this journey a memorable one!

Bedford Day is a celebration of our town. Through the center, a 
long parade marches, filled with groups ranging in ages from 
young to old. Those who don't walk fill the sidewalks and cheer 
on the parade as it marches by. The fun continues at the town 
center, where a collection of booths raise money for their causes.

Co-Captain Sally Waters on Believing... 

"As a small school in the DCL, we go against really 
tough competitors, so we need to come together as 
a team; we don't have superstars, so we need to 
believe that working as a team will get us through. 
When we stayed together and remembered the 
strong bonds we had as a team, we did well. If we let 
ourselves forget the team, and stopped believing we 
could do it through pure will power and teamwork, 
we made mistakes. " 


How was believing a big part of our 
success this season? 

"Without belief, we would be nothing. We 
believed in ourself and in each other; being 
part of the soccer team means knowing that 
you are going to make mistakes. You know 
that these mistakes could be costly, but also 
that your teammates will always be there to 
console you, back you up, and make up for 
your mistakes."

Indoor Track 

Q. How does moving relate to indoor track? 
A. The track team was never standing still, 
whether we were doing ABC's or laps at Reggie

Q. How did this season compare to other 

A. This year the indoor track had a lot of people 
break their personal records and qualify for 
states. A few people even qualified for a special 
meet that had harder requirements to qualify for 
than states did. Also this year Marina Boebel 
won the Division 4 states, and went to all-states 
where she placed 12th overall.

"We made history this year. It was an 
amazing thing to see how far our hard work 
and team unity could get us. Walking into the 
gym and seeing the banner (pictured top left), 
with our year on it, that's such a proud 
moment. I am so incredibly proud of us." 
- Emily Pietrasik Co-Captain (pictured right) 

Carina Boebel is the new division 
I shot-put champion! 

I only started indoor track because I wanted to do something to 
teep in shape for softball, and for something to do. So I taught 
nyself every thing I know now about shot-put, and trained with my 
lister. That year I was the only freshman to qualify for states and 
von DCL All-Star. My sophomore year I qualified for states again, 
ind I placed in the top 6 which qualified me for All-States. Again that 
ear I was awarded with DCL All-Star for being the only indoor 
rack athlete to make All-States. But this year, my junior year, was 
ny most successful year so far. I was tired of having to throw the 
hot-put outside in the cold and having it get stuck in the snow and 
ny hands freezing. So I purchased my own indoor shot-put. I 
rained, and worked hard to push myself each practice, and though 
he season overall wasn't a good one for me, I qualified for a special 
nvitational meet. I then went on and qualified for the next level, 
vhich was a special elite meet in which of all 4 divisions only the top 
14 qualified for it. Using my new indoor shot-put I worked by myself 
md trained for states. At the states meet, on my very first throw I 
hrew 36 ft. 3 1/4 inches. This blew my old personal record out of 
he water and I was able to win Division 4 States. At All-States I 
laced 12th overall. Winning Division 4 States led to my winning 
XL All-Star for the 3rd year in a row. 

Rachel Dushman holds onto her 
division 2 state champion title! 

It was an injury freshmen year that introduced me to the sport 
of diving. Since that point in time, I truly fell in love with the 
sport as I'd never imagined possible. It provides me with a sense 
of freedom and exhilaration, as there is no better feeling than 
learning a new dive and truly perfecting an old one. Being a part 
of a high school team, making friends, and contributing to the 
team is a great feeling which has left me with a great sense of 
accomplishment. Learning to master my fears in diving has 
helped make me a more secure and confident person in life, and 
is something I will be forever grateful for. It was through 
dedication, discipline, and great coaching that I was able to 
accomplish all the goals I had set for myself in this sport. This 
year as a senior, I was able to win DCL All-Star for the second 
time in a row, as well as to become the defending two time 
MIAA Division 2 State Champion, breaking the BHS 1 1 dive 
school record with a score of 489.05 in the process. Winning 
States for my second time this year, receiving my second 
consecutive Boston Globe All-Scholastic award, and breaking the 
BHS record was undeniably the perfect ending to a wonderful 
four years at BHS, and is something I will carry with me for the 
rest of my life

My eight years at BHS and the LABBB program have provided me with a very different 
perspective than most students. I have seen the kids I began my school yearswith graduate and I 
made friends with a new group several times over. The turning-22 program at I.ABBB keeps us in 
high school until 22 and in some ways I saw the school from a teacher's perspective^rceting ne^ 
great seniors every year. My most enjoyable experience was the role of high school football 
manager with coaches Belcher, McGrath and Zellner. My brother and I went to the Patriots 
training camp when we were seven years old and we love football. It was great to win the DCL 
championship last year. I have also learned a lot from participation in the Principal's Advisory 
Council with Mr. Sills who is the coolest man in the school. I also served on the Superintendent's 
Advisory Council and have been the head working classmate.

who you are. Anyone I've played music with, had class with, or just chilled 
with has helped to change my life, no doubt Crew, NHD, 2009 Eurotnp, 
yearbook. AFS, etc. - It's just been amazing. Then there's the marching

For all the roads you come upon, never regret taking them, because 
each decision will hopefully make you a better, stronger person in the 
long run. To all the people who got me this far, to my teachers, family, 
friends, and classmates, I thank you. You have all molded me into the 
strong open-minded individual that I am today and all I can do is thank 
you. I am sad but also ecstatic to see my run in the Bedford Public 
School system come to an end; and I can finally stop writing "K -12" on 
school forms. I hope every one of my classmates looks happily forward 
into the coming years and I wish you excel at whatever you wish to do 
or become. 

Mom and Dad. I can't thank you enough for supporting me throughout 
my high school years. You guys have been and I know always will be 
there for me. Allie, you're awesome. I know I can always come to you 
for advice if I need it. It's been nice being m high school with you for 
three years. Good luck and have fun your senior year! I would also like 
to thank the Ab's (Malik, Luke. Diz) you guys have been like brothers 
to me, We've had countless good memories. I know there will be 
many more to come.

be independent. By doing these things, I will never give up on my pursuits. I

ever ask for m this world. Thank you for teaching me compassion. I love

come back. Thanks.

Rachel Cooley 

To my mother, my father, Andy, my good friends, my fellow runners and 
singers and other extracurriculars. the social studies and English 
departments, my parents again, my church, anyone who has ever grven me 
gum, anyone who has ever suggested me music, teachers that were 
pushovers, teachers that pushed me over, all the time-wasting activities 
that in the end turned out to be time well spent, anyone who has spent a 
Friday or Saturday night with me, my parents yet again, and all the other 
miscellaneous people whose paths have collided with my own, I send you 
all a sincere and loud THAAAAAAAAAAAANK 
YYYOOOOOOOOOOOOOUUU that ternbly understates how much I 
truly owe this fine institution of learning and all of its inhabitants It's quite 
possible that he stole it. but I believe it was Mr Donnelly who said. *lf your 
high school years are the best years of your life, your life SUCKS.* My life 
has to live up to some pretty high standards. Good luck. Class of '1 1! 

I'd like to thank my family, who've supported me and helped me to jet 
where I am now. Thank you to my friends for making my experience 

school enjoyable 

Ching Hua Chang 

In a world where some students risk their lives to attend school. Bedford 
High School has provided me with a solid foundation upon which I can 
further my education, and for that I am extremely thankful. Paul Krugman 
once said that the world is more competitive now than ever, but I am 
confident that with the start BHS has given me I have nothing to fear. A 
school, however, is nothing but a collection of individuals, and without the 
classmates with whom I've spent the last four years, BHS would not be 
BHS The atmosphere created by our student body made school feel so 
much more worthwhile, so for that I would like to thank you all. Finally. I 
would like that thank my parents Steve and Michelle Chtu and my sister 
Christie for constantly encouraging me to push the limits and realty 
discover what I am capable of. All that I ever was. am. and ever hope to be 
is due to the support they have given me 

Michael Chiu

I would like to thank my parents, my family, and my friends who have 
helped and supported me throughout my school years, especially the past 
four. My mom and dad have believed in me and encouraged me m every 
way possible throughout my childhood; I can never repay them for their 
actions and kindness. My family and friends have made my life remarkable 
and exciting, and given me all the memories I will cherish eternally. High 
school has provided me with many opportunities, and I greatly appreciate 
all the teachers and faculty who have made those opportunities possible. I 
thank all the teachers who have taught me so much and helped me chase 
my academic passions. I would especially like to thank the teachers who 
have dedicated their time to the robotics team and science team, as well as 
those who have made my experiences m musical ensembles and festivals 
possible. If not for all these astounding people in my life. I would not be 
where I am or the person I am today. 

Alexander Cuti 

I want to thank my friends and family for making high school a more 
enjoyable experience. I seriously could not have done it without you guys. 
As Art Buchwald once said, "Whether it's the best of times or the worst of 
times, it's the only time we have." Live it up, peeps. 

Rebecca Darby 

I did it." First of all I want to thank God, because without him I wouldn't be 
here today. Next, the person I love the most in this world, the person that 
showed the most belief in me; my mother. Can't forget about my father, 
who has never given up on me. Also have to give thanks to my supporting 
grandmother. Shout out to my little sister Shaquana Deas 
for waking me up every morning for school, I love you. Mrs. Luke, I didn't 
forget about you. Thanks for the guidance and help through out the school 
year(s). To my loving and caring METCO director. I love you. I will always

I want to thank all of the great teachers I have had at BHS, especially 
those who inspired me to do my best work, not just for a grade but also 
for the experience. To my family- you are my best friends, and I couldn't 
ask for a better mom or brother. You are always there for me. and I can't 
thank you enough for everything that you have given me. I would also like 
to thank my amazing friends, who I couldn't live without. We've had so 
much fun together, and you have all made me into a better person. "If ever 
there is tomorrow when we're not together, there is something you must 
always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you 
seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if 
we're apart, I'll always be with you." - A.A. Milne.

Sean Donnellan 

Nicholas Donovan 

Words cannot articulate how thankful I am for my family, friends, and 
teachers. I could not have made it this far through my life without your 
love and support. To my friends: Vanessa Carlton's lyrics say. "In these 
broken time it's so easy to forget, so I sing to remind upon my shoulder 
you can rest, cause I'll always give you my best.' I like to think that life is 
like outer space; constant movement of planets, comets, and stars and 
sudden changes that are out of anyone's control. To counteract the 
spontaneity and action, we have friends who are like gravity; we keep each 
other grounded. Without you as my gravity I don't know where I would 
be floating off to. I love you all so much and wish everyone the best! 

Jessica Doucette 

"Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start 
today and make a new end"! From kindergarten to senior year I couldn't 
ask for a better school experience. I want to thank my family by helping 
me get through life with little struggle. Mommy. You helped me through 
the years of life when I needed you; you were always there for me to 
count on when I had hard times. Daddy. The advice you gave me really 
helped and guided my way through reality, you were also there for me 
when I needed you. Dernc, your a wonderful big brother and you taught 
me a lot. you helped me look at life in so many ways that I couldn't 
imagine. Derek II. the best little brother ever, you always make me laugh 
even when I'm really upset, you help me get through my rough days. 
Grandma & Grandpa. Thanks for always believing m me when I didn't 
believe in myself. Thanks and I love you all so much.

Throughout high school I have had many influences m my life, beginning 
with my parents. I will be forever grateful for their constant love, support, 
and endless encouragement Their countless hours driving me to 
gymnastics practice, watching soccer games, track meets, drve meets, and 
supporting my late night projects, have helped me reach my full potential. 
While their advice and high expectations might not have always been 
appreciated. I now realize it was one of the contributing influences that 
helped motivate me A huge thanks goes to my number one fans, my 
grandparents, and my unde. for all their love and support of everything I 
do. To all my coaches, who supported my dreams and reinforced the 
importance of hard work and discipline, patence and teamwonk, I thank 
you. Last but not least thanks to all my friends for simpry being there, 
accepting me for who I am. and taking this crazy journey with me.

"Life is a journey not a destination"- Ralph Waldo Emerson, I think of high 
school as the last leg of the first part of my journey. I've learned a lot about 
myself over these past four years and I'm ready to move forward. Thank 
you to my parents, teachers, and friends, for shaping these years and 
making them memorable. This time of my life has taught me a lot about 
myself, my family, my friends, and the world around me. I want to thank 
BHS for playing a role m that. This is the end to a great chapter m my life 
and all that I have left to do is turn the page

to go and I don't want to. I love it here. From Davis to BHS. so many 
things have impacted me so immensely, especially the Class of 20 1 1 . Even 
if we weren't the closest of friends over the past 13* years we've spent 
together you have each done something to help me become who I am. 
You are incredible and I wish you the best of luck in the future. 
Of course I'd like to give a special thanks to a few people. Family: Mom, 
Dad, Robert, (and the rest of the lovino's/OConnor's) for helping me 
with spelling quizzes, late night projects, and getting me to school on time. 
Thank you for being there for me. Ms. Kornfeld. you are an incredible 
teacher. Thank you for making history a subject I love and want to pursue 
as a career. To friends: thanks for memories of talent shows, sleepovers.

I'd like to thank the people whom I couldn't have handled high school 
without: my family. I know I may complain and drag my feet, but you 
never gave up on me. and if it weren't for the constant pushing. I wouldn't 
be graduating this year. Also, there are certain teachers that I am glad I've 
gotten to know: Mr, Rose and Mr. Nrven. Mr Rose, you know how 
important a role you've played. I don't need to go into detail. And. Mr. 
Niven, you are by far the best teacher I've ever had. I've never had such a 
good time in English class, and I'm glad you were my teacher. And. last but 
not least, my fnends. I wish I had enough space to talk about each of you 
in depth, but 175 words isn't much. You guys have always been there for 
me, and you know who you are, I can't thank you guys enough. So long 
Bedford High School, you'll be missed. Dernnis.

Thank you so much mom and dad for your dedication to helping me 
through high school and for putting up with me and my procrastination. I 
couldn't have done it without your help! Thanks to Bryan for posting 
videos on my facebook from two rooms away, for giving me lunch money, 
and for, well, being my twin. Thanks to the members of Stylus for all the 
great meetings together, and to the Drama Club for being completely 
insane and amazing! Thanks in general to my teachers and friends for 
inspiring me and helping me to be the person I am today. Congrats to the 
Class of 2011! 

Mom and dad - thank you so much for your limitless encouragement, 
patience, and just being there for me. I know sometimes I can be a major 
pain, but luckily things always seem to work out in the end, Thomas - my 
brain is now fully crammed with fun, not-so-fun, and occasionally downright 
silly memories of time spent together. I still have no idea how you 
managed to grow so big, but regardless it's been a lot of fun having you as 
a younger brother all these years. Grandma - I think it goes without 
saying that my life would be infinitely duller if you weren't a part of it. All 
of my teachers - thank you all for opening my eyes to so many new 
concepts and ideas. I've really enjoyed my 4 years at BHS. All of my 
friends - hopefully by the time any of you read this I'll be accepted into 
college and never have to see any of you ever again... ok. no. Let me try 
that again. Bedford really wouldn't be the same if it weren't for all of you 
and I'll definitely miss you next year. Good luck in the future.

to an end. Congratulations everyone we did it. GB! 


Oldest in the high school, wow it feels like just yesterday I was enjoying 
nap time in preschool. I could say that my entire life has been awesome,

me and help me out. Thanks MOM and DAD for both loving me and 
helping me grow up to be the person I am today. Thank you KATIE for

I couldn't give thanks without appreciating my large, unique, and loving 
family. I've been blessed with a uniquely large family one combined with 
McKenna and Sam Petri and their dad Vic, and then my mom, and brother 
and sister. I really love each of you guys so much in a different way and I 
apologize for the hard things I have put you all through. However I have to 
give the largest thanks to my mom and Vic, I couldn't have asked for a 
more loving, life-altering, and inspiring set of role models to look up to, you 
guys have been there for me when I needed you most, you were my best 
friends, In less than two full years I have gained friends that will last a 
lifetime and have learned a lot about myself and other people. You never 
stop growing as a person until you shut your heart from others, I want to 
give thanks for everyone who has taught me to have an open heart, for I 
am still growing.

My life has been pretty awesome so far and it's mainly because of my 
family. Thank you Mom for all of the love and support. You taught me how 
to love and care, how to treat others and how to bake cookies. Dad, 
thanks for being so incredibly cool, You have shown me what it means to 
live your life in the best possible way. You have taught me patience and 
helped me realize that every action should be made with kindness and 
concern for others. I was raised on the belief that true love is the desire to 
give without thought of self but only of others. Mom and Dad, I know that 
you have always been there for me giving to me in every way you could, 
through love, lessons, moralities, attention, and wonderful homemade 
food. I love you so much and am so grateful that I have such absurdly 
amazing parents, 

Nicolas Plante 

As I look back on these years in high school I see how far I have come. I 
would like to thank my Mom for always being there and Dad for always 
being up for helping me with that one last problem on my homework. 
Thanks to Matt and Mike, my older brothers, for all that they've taught 
me. Thanks to all my friends, who have made high school an enjoyable

"Procrastination usually results in sorrowful regret. Today's duties put off 
until tomorrow give us a double burden to bear; the best way is to do 
them in their proper time." (Ida Scott Taylor). Throughout my lifetime I've 
always procrastinated no matter what it was whether it was school work 
or chores around the house. Even with this procrastination I've had the 
support of my family and friends. I want to thank all my teachers for 
everything they've taught me, my friends Marcos, Desiree, Sophie, Jessica, 
Manny, and everyone else for all the great times we had no matter what 
we were doing. Most importantly I would like to thank my mom and dad 
for everything they've done for me and always being there whenever I 
needed you. No matter where life takes us I hope all of you have a good 
future and stay in contact. Thank you everybody for everything we've 
done together. Once again THANK YOU MOM and DAD for everything, 
love your son Joseph Pompa. 

First off I'd like to thank my family (Mom, Dad, and Evan) for always being 
there for me, pushing me to be my best, and supporting me m everything 
I've done. But mostly, I want to thank my friends for making this the best 
four years of my life. As a class we've all been through so much together, 
and at times it's been pretty tough but somehow we've survived. To my 
ladiezz on the tennis team, you guys have made these four seasons of 
tennis amahhzing (SARS, cappy pappy, syb). To my teammates on the 
volleyball team, good times bucs, this has been a crazy four years!! (KF. 
AW. BW, JC, EP) To my BEST FRIENDS EVER. Tor, Ky. Alice - 1 honestly 
don't know where to begin. I can't even imagine school without you. but 
you guys know we've had some incredible adventures and I'm sure that 
wherever the hell we end up going we'll always remember the good times 
So thanks BHS for everything, it's been one crazy nde.

I would like to thank all my friends sincerely because high school would not 
have been as good as it was without you guys. Also I would like to thank 
my parents for supporting me these four long years; without them I surely 
would not be on my way to college. High school was a learning process for 
me, both educationally and socially, and because of my teachers, peers, and 
parents, I feel like I am prepared to take the next step in advancing my 
knowledge of the world. As Kurt Vonnegut said, "New knowledge is the 
most valuable commodity on earth. The more truth we have to work with, 
the richer we become."

new experiences and opportunities and the prep related classes that were 
helpful for school. They pushed me to do well and make sure that I 
achieved to the best of my ability. And thanks to all my friends: Arid,

work, and self-betterment in me. Second, thank you to my teachers for 
their unrelenting dedication, hard work, and time and effort that they put

Wow. I can't believe four years has gone by just like that. It feels like just 
yesterday I was leaving for the first day of freshmen year. To start out if it 
weren't for my family, friends, and God. I don't know what I woukJ've 
done. Mom and Dad, if it weren't for you always pushing me to do my 
best, I don't know how I would've made it through the past twelve years 
of school. Also, I would like to thank all my friends, because they really 
have always been there for me. and I will always be grateful for that. 
Finally. I believe that God has helped me get through even the hardest 
times during these years, and if it weren't for Him, I don't know where I'd 
be. I love you all, thank you so much for everything.

If you are reading this senior thanks to see if you're in it, stop. Move on. 
Everyone who has ever associated with me has in some small way helped 
me become a better person and thus deserves to be thanked. The road 
through high school has been full of its ups and its downs, and I certainly 
would not have made it through without the wisdom and encouragement 
of my peers, family, and faculty alike. Hopefully through their guidance I 
have arrived at a higher point than where I stared four years ago. Most 
importantly, thank you class of 2011. We've grown together since we 
were toddlers and in 23 years I'll look back to these years with a bald head 
and have something to smile about. 

First, I want to thank God for sparing my life to see my senior year of High 
School. I want to thank my family for their love and support. Also my 
teachers and counselors who guided me through my high school career. 
Especially Ms. G., I love you. Thanks to all my Metco. Bedford, and Base 
family. For my friends who have been with me through the years, special 
thanks to Ariel, Jessica, Ashley, Coretta. Yovanna and Cullen, I love you all. I 
have mixed emotions -part of me is sad to leave, but I will be moving on to 
a higher level in my education. Each of us has his or her own toolbox; it s 
full of memories, experiences, accomplishments, and dreams. As we go off 
in different directions, remember the only one who can close your toolbox 
is YOU. There will always be room for more tools, more memories, new 
experiences, greater accomplishments and yes, even bigger dreams. I'm 
going to truly miss Bedford High but thank you all for my success.

MOM (and LUCY) - Even though we butt heads pretty much every day, 
/ou're the greatest mom I could ask for. I am so grateful for everything 
you have done for me, whether it be getting me to baseball practice, 
helping me with my homework or working hard to provide for our family. 
MRS.GIUSTI - Every day I came in you would always help me no matter 
what, and for that I thank you. Without you. I'm positive that I would not 
have made it through high school. 

MRS. FORD - Thank you for putting up with me and helping me succeed 
these past four years, 

MR. ALPERIN - It's been nice to have someone to talk to about life, music 
and sports.

We have watched you take your first steps, your first dive into the

broken heart, your first up to bat.. we have watched with great joy 
and pride, every baby step of the way.. .We have seen you drive 
away in your new car for the first time, and stand up to bat in a 
stadium made for super heros you. The pride we feel in 
your carefree ways, and your good heart, the way you made us 
laugh through out the years... and of all these things two things 
stand out.. two things you have said to us over and over.. .we will 
never forget "it isnt what it looks litce 
', when your stealing the last cup cate.and "I do what I want" 

As you go off to a life we can only hope is 
amazing.. remember.. never be blue.. we love you!

Since the day I found out I was having you, you have been my miracle. 
Every day, from the day you were born until now, you have been my 
miracle. You have brought sunshine to a dark place, you brought smiles 
where there were once tears. You have never ceased to amaze me . You 
made me proud of you as a child, as a brother, as a friend, and I couldn't 
be more proud of the man you have become. You inspire me to be better. 
You are a great ball player. Never stop reaching for your dreams. You are 
one of those special people that leave an imprint on everything and 
everyone you encounter. You have made a difference in this world. You 
saved my life. We have been through it all together, and we are better 
people for it. As it was in the beginning, it will continue to be.. .you and me
